Oh Christmas is next week? Let’s sell some Wii Us then
Nintendo, in its late but infinite wisdom, has finally decided to discount the Wii U, now only $200 flat for its factory refurbished unit at the Nintendo Outlet store. The last time we saw this deal was over a year ago when Nintendo decided randomly to clear out stock in the middle of the year.
- Wii U 32GB Console + Nintendo Land (Refurbished) — $200 (list price $300)
- New Nintendo 3DS XL Red (Refurbished) — $170 (list price $200)
The black 32GB Deluxe Wii U comes with Nintendo Land (physical game disc), a black Wii U GamePad, power cables for system/GamePad, HDMI cable, and the Wii U sensor bar. As mentioned, it’s factory refurbished, so it comes with a full one-year Nintendo warranty. You can pick up the unit at Nintendo.com and pay $5 shipping, but you may as well buy on Nintendo’s eBay shop to get free shipping (and heck, earn $4 cash back in eBay Bucks).
No quantity or expiration date has been set by Nintendo, but as of writing about 434 units are sold.
Will it arrive in time for Christmas?
If you opt for free shipping, you’ll deal with ETA of December 20 to December 28 — so we highly suggest paying the expedited shipping fee if Christmas is a concern. For $9.99, that gets it to you between December 20 and December 23 depending on your zip code, and you can get it as soon as December 20 if you pay for one-day shipping cost of $16.99.
In terms of a refurbished system, the only other offering available at Nintendo’s eBay store is a red 3DS XL for $170. That’s about $5 cheaper than usual.
